Rosé of Cinsaut 2022

Rosé wine sales in the United State increased 118% between 2015 and 2020 – with the year 2017 seeing a rise in sales of 53%. As this country deepens its love affair with rosé, the market is expected to skyrocket. The days of rather boring “pink juice” have long gone, and many rosés of today are simply outstanding.

Wrights Station Winery has produced an excellent 2022 Santa Clara Valley Rosé of Cinsault (about $35). Guava and watermelon are the stars of the fruit – with a spring bouquet floral nose and a pleasant dry finish. This wine stands up to any rosé lover’s taste test.

La Vita Release Party

Bargetto Winery’s 2019 La Vita wine is an intricate blend of Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Refosco. The annual release party held at Bargetto’s beautiful property in June is always a special event – as each year a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this luscious wine goes to a local nonprofit such as Hospice of Santa Cruz County. Community Bridges’ Pajaro Valley Flood Relief is this year’s beneficiary. La Vita is $65 a bottle.
